As some of you know, my grades have been... let's just say I was near failing. Last thursday I got most of my grades up during the small amount of hours that remained in that shortened school day, but it was enough to get me up, and it was even a planning period for me, since now most of my grades will be C's, B's, and A's. But enough about school...
It seems my music skills haven't been failing me for the last two songs. I'm telling y'all I'm super creative, It's just the way I put it down can be messy and empty at times. (like me tbh) but seriously I'm trying my best to make my songs, near professional. And thanks to all the criticism that I've genuinely listened too, I can hear a major increase in my musics polish. So, thanks all of you who comment on my songs! It helps a bunch.

Welp, I'm about to be failing 3 classes (even though I'm more advanced.) and I have to get those grades up before I start spewing out more tracks. My teacher even told me that my "smartness" is keeping me bored of all the topics we were learning (in literature anyway.) So yeah, if you get a little bit of music, I'm working hard, if you get a lot, then msg me and tell me to stop slacking and do my work lmao.

I'm so happy and proud of my music nowadays. It's the greatest feeling to know you've improved and that's exactly what's going on! And I'm listening to my music, taking in feedback, implementing some of it, and I'm getting a hang of improvement. I swear, thank you all for being apart of this journey. Estoy muy orgulloso!

I've been really enjoying everyones feedback and critisism. It helps me learn what works, what needs work, or what doesn't work at all. And I'm very grateful for that. I'm grateful for my small amount of followers. Especially those who take time out of there day to listen to my track, comprehend it, listen to it's different aspects, and comment about them. You guys have been the best. I would like to get bigger though, I feel as if I have a chance on getting on that featured section. That would be the bomb, and with yall's help, I could probably get there. So if y'all could either give y'all conversations a lil bit of an advertisement of me then that'd be great, and mostly hilarious. Welp, gotta get to the music! It ain't gunna make, mix, and post itself!

For the past 3 years I've been really tense about my music. I always thought I would never have grown my own style, or would have been able to make actual decent music in general. When I started off making music, I tried making dubstep as soon as I could. It failed and sounded terrible. I kept trying to make it over and over again but I didn't realize there were steps to take before I started making complex big league stuff. Still, I kept on pushing towards dubstep. I started using different softwares like soundtrap, LMMS, and then I got caught up in FLS.
Here's where it gets interesting. Before hand, I used alot of LMMS so there wasn't much confusion on how to navigate. But then there came a problem, how do I use this software to create my own music instead of using loops and such. I then spent around 4-6 months trying to figure out the layout, the buttons, the keys, the chords, the genres, the vst's, the community (Even though I had been on newgrounds since 2015 but on another account.), and even my life. And after the clouds disparted and showed the musical light (youtube), I knew I was ready. I said goodbye to my last account, and said hello to... BLOCKGHOST.
I started off with simple dance songs instead of tagging all my songs as "experimental". I even made a remix of an undertale ST. I made a simple background for my songs, something I made in paint. I made my logo on medibang from a sketch of mine. The sketch was inspired by a video on youtube speed-drawing 3 ghosts with some of my music in the background. And after some time and experimentation.
I've finally managed to find my style, my genres (even though I may stray here and there just for the fun of it.) I've managed to get my music life together, I've even learned how to design my own sounds. But I'm still learning, and that's ok, because I find the road ahead to be something to look forward too. Sound design has even landed me a role as SFX Director in a game that's in development. And I hope that for the future I can suffice you and give you all the best music I can. Thank you all for being apart of the ride! <3
